Our research is specifically aimed at understanding:
- Which flexible mechanisms enable our brain to analyze auditory scenes;
- What mechanistic functions do the strikingly different neuronal activity patterns of the same neuronal populations subserve;
- How is rhythmic neuronal activity utilized by the brain to simultaneously enhance, parse, transform, and transmit relevant information;
- The specific role the thalamus plays in perceptual-cognitive operations.
Determining how the brain seamlessly performs these operations will allow for a mechanistic understanding of oscillatory dynamics in the brain, and ultimately decipher the brain’s code.
